Charlie's Story

(1993)
A novel by

 
At the age of fourteen, Charlotte "Charlie" Collins is struggling to come to terms with her mother's desertion ten years earlier, her father's alienating silence, and the constant cruelties of her classmates, who mercilessly taunt her as the "Abandoned Baby" - a child so hateful that even her mother couldn't love her.

Feeling isolated and lost, Charlie withdraws from her family and classmates, wondering what crime she had committed to desrve such horrible psychological torture.

With a father who continually disappoints her and no friends to speak of, Charlie is close to death of a broken heart. Just when she is pushed to the very edge, feeling her most desperate, at a time when other might withdraw and give up, Charlie finds the strength from deep within to fight back. In this terrifying tale about school bullies, Charlie learns that her individuality is also her strength, and that she holds the power to change her destiny.
